Dravid sir never asked me to curb my natural game: Prithvi Shaw | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Rahul Dravid advised Prithvi Shaw to stick to his natural style of batting, which is aggressive, and not copy the former India captain's manner which included restraint. "It was exceptional. We had toured for about two years (before the 2018 under-19 World Cup) with Rahul sir. He knew that he was different from us but he never forced us to be like him. Temperament is important but he never asked me to change anything, he used to tell me to play my natural game because he knew that if I play the powerplay overs, it becomes difficult to dismiss me," Shaw said on Cricbuzz. Dravid was also head coach of the India team that won the under-19 World Cup in 2018 with Shaw as captain. The right-handed opener said that while Dravid ran a tight ship and insisted on discipline, he was als...

Hardik Pandya doesn’t fit into playing XI even in ODIs and T20s if he can’t bowl: Sarandeep Singh | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Former India selector Sarandeep Singh has backed the current committee's call to ignore Hardik Pandya from the Test squad and said the all-rounder doesn't fit into the playing XI even in the shorter formats if he can't bowl his quota of overs. After undergoing a back surgery in 2019, Hardik has not bowled regularly since his comeback and not being able to offer his all-round skills cost him a place in the Indian Test squad for the UK tour.
